IMHO you can export directory trees (-alldirs option), but if you do
that then you can list each file system in /etc/exports only once. So it
is impossible to export some (different) directories from a filesystem,
but not others. But again, this is not a big problem when I use a VPN
connection between the two file servers only.
Coda is looks VERY interesting! :-) Two key features:
"high performance through client side persistent caching"
continued operation during partial network failures in server network
Promising. I'm going to try it and let you know how it goes.
